During the festival de la cite in Lausanne (9th – 14th of july 2013, 2013.festivalcite.ch), we presented a brand new version of bombIR, an open source tool for digital graffiti using customized spraycans, infrared tracking and powerful projectors. Featuring graffiti writers Alesh One and Cren One from Berlin and some great anonymous graffiti writers from Lausanne.
bombIR has been created with processing . A psmove controller and the psmoveapi is used to connect the spraycans with the software. You can download the bombIR source code from github.
While facing a number of site specific and technology specific challenges we are getting closer to the opening of the “Cité”. Very helpful, friendly, capable staff is making our set up here run relatively smooth – Swiss summer and a beautyful scenery helps as well. Got some local graph writers testing the installation last night…
We’ll keep you updated!
Last testings in the garden. Last bits of glue applied to hacked spray cans. Last bugs spotted. Flight goes tomorrow…
Warm up for Light Bombing at the Festival de la Cité Lausanne all next week Tuesday until Sunday! From Thursday on with Alesh One and Cren flying in from Berlin! Fun!
Take a can in your hand and bomb on a building – all over – with light – no ladder or rope required. Graffiti Research Lab Germany presents a new generation of digital graffiti for physical architecture. Manipulating the look of a well known building, using your imagination, leaving your mark and your message, owning it for an evening. LIGHT BOMBIMG lets you interact with what seemed static, grey and unchangable with a push on a spray nozzle and a simple stroke of your hand.
If you are around, join us for our next event at Lausanne, Switzerland!
9th to 14h of July
Festival de la cité Lausanne
Featuring graffiti writers from Berlin and Lausanne.
Your piece. On a wall. In another city. On another continent. As you draw.
GRL members in Berlin, Vancouver and Seoul are preparing for PWN THE WALL, an interactive digital graffiti event, connecting Berlin with Vancouver and Seoul. We will open our 25 hour installation friday night at Platoon Kunsthalle, Schönhauser Allee 9. Read all about the event here.
A lot of preparation will be done before that to make it (at least for us) the event of the year. Feel free to visit us at Platoon the whole week before the event. We could always use a helping hand.
Pimp My Installation
To make the place as cosy as possible and inviting to lounge around during the event we are looking for furniture. If you’ve got a spare couch in your cellar or a floor lamp that you always wanted to get rid off or at least rent out for a weekend, contact us. We can organise the transport.
Note: We are not in the Platoon Kunsthalle itself but in a building behind the Kunsthalle.
More details to come.
